427 pgs (Sigma series #10)
Painter Crowe and his team at Sigma Forces soon become aware of the incident at Yosemite and quickly discover the nature of the fog now spreading throughout the area and it's potentially global consequences. It's up to Painter, Pierce, and the rest of the Sigma Force crew to stop it and those behind it before the earth experiences its sixth extinction.
Rollins does one thing very well, he moves his plot along rapidly. Not much time is spent on character development. But that's not really a priority when most of the characters have been around now for 10 books. He's more concerned with pulling you in to the story and making you want to read late into the night to see what happens next. He knows what he's doing and he's consistent in his delivery. The whole series is a lot of fun, even if sometimes it gets a little too over the top with the action, science, and repeated near-death escapes by the members of Sigma.
